It's easier and safer to book your room now and then cancel if you need to. If I remember correctly you must cancel 31 days before the events. You can verify that with the hotel when you make your booking.

700s would be two sizes larger than the standard front tire on your truck.

The line caries oil up to the rocker arms.
The tube mentioned returns the oil by gravity to the pan.

What did you do with your car/truck today?
02/17/18 08:55 PM
To date I have removed all accessories from the engine and repainted all of it and reassembled. Learning an immense amount of knowledge as I go. I have just recently redone the cowl and radiator lacing and have installed the hood. I'm really pleased with the way everything is coming together as well as the appearance of the car. I have purchased window seals for the entire car and will be starting to replace this in the near future. I messed up the other day and broke an interior door handle trying to use the J-132 tool from Filling Station. Time to make a trip to the barn and see if Grandpa has set any of these aside. The project has been very interesting but you have no idea how many times I have carried on a "conversation" with my Grandfather as to how to do things.

I believe they all have 1/2" strips as that is what the interior panels get nailed to. On the angled part of the kickup there is also a strip for tacking the interior to. The floor pan is nailed to the top but usually, just inside the nail strips. I haven't done an interior on a 32' to know for sure. I know my Olds is a 32' and it has nail strips. Hopefully someone with a 32' 4dr special will chime in.

I assume you're referring to the cowl filler strip as the piece of wood nailed to the bottom edge of the front of the sill that the cowl metal gets nailed into. If so, then yes, the bottom of the hinge pillar should finish about even with that strip, and also even with the strip that's under the rocker panel.

Hi Jeff,

Unfortunately, I can't refer you to a picture as I couldn't find any online. The one movie pic I found on google just showed the rear of the car and when I enlarged it it was out of focus.
I own a copy of the movie on DVD and this is where I see it. There seem to be bowties at the window sill on both front and rear doors on the driver's side. In all fairness, my 64.5 year old peepers may be playing tricks on me. LOL

I figure SOMEBODY out there in Chevyland or Pre-War Land will have a handle on it. I am going to research 28/29 Dodges as CJP alludes to see for myself.

The mystery continues!! willy

Hi Guys,
I am about to fit a LH side mount to my 29 Chevy.
Could anyone please let me know how far from the rear edge of the fender, the hole should go. In other words the distance from the aft lip of the fender to the aft lip of the wheel well.

If you're going to change the front pinion bearing to a double row? taper roller bearing,or 2 single taper bearings back to back,be careful how much pre-load you set the taper bearing/s up with.

I live in a small town and have found most people are considerate when looking at the cars, there is usually an exception now and then. The thing I find interesting is how many people had or know someone who had a car just like mine! 1932 4 door special sedan

"DELRIN" is a very hard non-deforming type of plastic,more suitable for making fixed & rotating bushes.I used to machine it all the time at work making electrical motor cable bushes the steelworks motor repair shop I worked at for 34 years.
Polyurethane is available in quite a few colours,and different hardnesses(I think its hardness is measured in "Duros"?).You may also be able to buy a polyurethane mixing kit in the U.S.(we can here in Australia),make a mold and make your shock absorber bushes any colour(obviously black)or any hardness you want.One trick I picked up,that to machine any polyurethane that was extremely soft was to freeze it in either ice & salt water or dry ice,put it in the lathe and machine it before it defrosted.But you had to be fairly quick if using ordinary ice & salt water.

Has anyone purchased a Hydraulic Stabilizer for the steering that is made for a Model T Ford?
Also, what shims and springs work in the drag link for a 1916 Chevy?
